The Moon Landing Was A Hoax EP (12" Single)Reznik & Mikesh
Just act like it didn’t happen…
Reznik & Mikesh crack open a fine vintage bottle of conspiracy with the scorching truth bomb ‘The Moon Landing Was A Hoax’. Following their remix of Telepopmusik last year, the freshly-formed duo of Keinemusik affiliates deliver such an acid weapon Justin Strauss insisted they release it after it caused total Panorama Bar meltdown for him.
In case you missed the inaugural edit, ‘The Moon Landing Was A Hoax’ takes off with pure 303 bounces before sharp vocal cuts pepper the mix leading to a heaven-opening breakdown. Total euphoria; it’s so powerful it totally misses the lunar landscape and spins us back around our own planet faster and faster with every emphatic layer. Reznik & Mikesh’s ‘Area 51 Infinite Mix’ adds three more minutes of feels, creating this immense drama that sits somewhere between Chemical Brothers and Two Lone Swordsmen.
It’s backed by a giant leap of a remix by Justin Strauss himself, who teams up with Throne of Blood’s Max Pask as Each Other. They take it up through the gears, ramping the rolling acid tension until the last two minutes pays out the euphoria jolt we’re waiting for. File under rocket-fuel. There are no small steps elsewhere on this trip either; ‘The Nostromo Swerve’ goes intergalactic with such tense, epic acid techno thunder it could dodge entire black holes while ‘Kiss My Axe’ goes all-out Stingray-style electro with its gravity-defying breakbeat swing and sweeping layers of melancholy synths. Total celestial immersion: in space, no one can hear you scream, dream or even make up hoaxes… Happy landings.
